The AK-47 is about as classic as video game weapons get and the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War version of the gun is very strong.

It's so strong, in fact, that Call of Duty League assault rifle users have been equipping it in scrimmages while practicing for the 2021 season. Some of the best AR slayers in the world are loving the AK this year.

The AK-47 is superior when it comes to firepower in the game, so many pros are running it with specific attachments in the Gunsmith to help maximize its slaying power and potential when big money is on the line.

Metas change and players switch up their loadouts often, so make sure to check back to see what’s new and what’s different every now and then.

CDL pros have since made a "gentleman's agreement" to not use the AK-47, but here's what they were using before that. And it's what they might use again if they ever agree to play with it again.
